[Programme for improving emotional and cognitive changes in patients under renal dialysis in Egypt]
AbstractWe investigated the effect of chronic renal failure on the emotional status, social and psychological adaptation and the cognitive status of patients and the effect of a programme to improve the psychosocial state of the patients; 40 renal dialysis patients and 40 healthy controls were included. We used the Emotional Status Scale, Psychosocial Adaptation Scale, the Primary Mental Abilities Test and the Memory Processes Scale for assessment of the participants. The controls had better emotional/ cognitive status and psychosocial adaptation than the dialysis patients, a statistically significant difference. There were also statistically significant differences between the patients before and after the application of the programme
